Love the new Layout Overlay in LR4.

One tweak that would make it better would be if the overlay could be there on every image in Survey and Compare view. I often have clients wanting to see several shots at the same time with their cover mask over the image. I can only do this to one image at a time in Loupe view.

I think this is a great idea and a natural evolution of the tool.

I have been reporting on this feature a few times. There seems to be a problem ( at least on my iMac ). At the moment I just cannot use it. The image placed comes up with the wrong aspect ratio. I can range the size, but not the aspect ratio.

Sorry if I am interrupting this post, but I don't know how to get through. If you search for Layout Overlay, you should find my posts. Thanks...

Oh, one more request. Can we please have the overlay active in Develop mode too? I spend a lot of time in Dev mode when actually shooting tethered, constantly making changes to the images that come in. I hardly spend any time in LIbrary mode, and having to constantly switch between the two to see the overlay while shooting is quite inconvenient.
